When individuals lose or have a severely damaged tooth, they may need a dental implant, an artificial tooth root made out of titanium. It will be placed into the patient’s jawbone in order to replace the missing tooth root and allow for a replacement tooth or bridge.
Most patients are extremely happy with the look, feel, and function of their new tooth following a dental implant. Not only will they be functional, but they will look and feel natural in your smile.
In order to determine if you are a candidate for dental implants, Ladera Family Dentists will inspect your gums, teeth, and jawbone. If you are healthy enough to have your tooth extracted, you are likely a strong candidate to have a dental implant put in.
Not at all! Ladera Family Dentists will use a local anesthesia during the procedure to eliminate any potential discomfort. After the procedure is over, they may decide to prescribe a pain medication to ensure that you are not in pain once the anesthesia wears off. Most patients will feel minimal discomfort once they arrive at home, returning to work the next day with little to no noticeable pain.
The total cost of your treatment will depend on numerous factors, such as how many implants will be placed in your mouth, whether or not a tooth must be extracted, the type of prosthesis being used, and other factors specific to your case. Once Ladera Family Dentists examine your oral situation, they can provide a more thorough estimate.
